TU provides free access to ProQuest:

The online library will employ a remote access system to offer the student with books, documents, journals, and other reading materials.

ProQuest at a cost

TU Central Library bought the software from the United Kingdom for Rs 3.2 million. This facility is available to students from TU’s constituent institutions and other universities that have established an agreement with the library. The platform will give access to content such as dissertations, thesis, ebooks, newspapers, journals, historical collections, governmental archives, cultural archives, and others in an aggregated database.

How to get its access?

It just takes a few steps to become a member of the ProQuest digital library. Students must fill out a form available on the library’s website in order to read current and future publications from a variety of foreign writers. They will be given an email address based on their application forms in order to access such materials.

More than 30,000 readers have created their profiles on the platform as of March 2021. According to the central library, the database has over 50,000 e-books and over five million e-thesis and dissertations. Plus, it also hosts thousands of journals, articles, magazines, and write-ups.

Additions

Furthermore, TU has recently inked arrangements for additional materials with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the National Digital Library of India. With this, ADB’s three lakhs and the National Digital Library of India’s 45 million books, journal articles, and other materials are now accessible for free.

The central library is going on with plans to develop TU’s own e-library database. Here, postgraduate, philosophical, and doctoral research articles will be kept online. Accordingly, 2,000 research papers have gone into digital form.
